I have been working on this piece on and off for four years. I have had the stone pieces much longer and previously I had cast a model of the stone pieces in plaster and carved a similar composition to the one I have now in stone. The composition consists of flowers , a type of lily. But I didn´t want the piece to be too figurative but rather just some natural form that looked fluid.
Some of my colleagues in the workshop thought it looked more like maize than flowers and that´s cool aswell as I had been thinking on the work of Diego Rivera while working on the piece and my intention was to capture that type of fluidity Rivera has in his fantastic Murals.
The drawing will give you an idea of what I wish to achieve although I am still not completely sure how the final composition will look.
|The center and outer pieces are cast in clear resin .|
|I finally decided on a system of wooden dowls on which the resin|
pieces would rest pinned a a four centimeter distance from the wooden back support.
